Using leaves from several plants, the artist merges the leaves with drawings, creating beautiful and fun illustrations, showing leaves as clouds, paragliders or even night dresses. In his better-known series, "Fashion in Leaves", Ling uses diverse leaves like they were dresses, in illustrations that could appear in any fashion magazine.
Ling explains with his own words: "I was wondering does fashion can be part of leaf art as I'm interested in fashion. The most challlenging in this project was how to apply leaf to dress! However, I tried to find some more special leaf this time to make the "dress" looks elegant. I was very surprised to get those such beautiful leaves in a garden. I never thought the leaves can be so beautiful, some of them are full of structures, patterns and lines on it, different colors in a leaf, even is withered leaves. So, I applied them into different types of dresses according to the different types of leaves.".
